Christmas in Australia
How Christmas is celebrated in Australia

The North Wind

Words John Wheeler             Music William G James


The north wind is tossing the leaves.
The red dust is over the town;
The sparrows are under the eaves,
And the grass in the paddock is brown;
As we lift up our voices and sing,
To the Christ-child the heavenly King.


The tree ferns in green gullies sway;
The cool stream flows silently by;
The joy bells are greeting the day,
And the chimes are adrift in the sky,
As we lift up our voices and sing,
To the Christ-child the heavenly King.

 

Note:-
A north wind in Australia is a hot wind.
When it is not hot, it is hotter.
